Having finally discovered Google Docs I was considering freeing up some much needed space on my laptop and working completely online. Paying for access to MSOffice products for so long, it seems almost unbelievable that a valid alternative to many of its products is available for free! Then whilst browsing I spotted this article on the Dennis Kennedy “Twitter” feed http://twitter.com/dkennedyblog and I realised I am not alone. Some 21% of those questioned for this article are now word processing online. I am still feeling somewhat attached to the familiarity of MSOffice, and I’m not ready to make a switch yet. But it is nice to know there is an alternative, and proof that protecting IP certainly doesn’t have mean access to the product is locked away from common access.
